AFI - Paper Airplanes (Makeshift Wings) Lyrics

Raise high monolithic statues so fragile
As they fall, I am ever enthralled
Gaze, lie and smirk in time
Your arrogance will suit you well
'Til fashion is dispelled

As waves of plastic fame go out of fashion
You're goin' out, goin' out forever alone
These waves of plastic fame go out of fashion
You're goin' out, goin' out forever alone, alone

From above a rain of ashes descends anathema
I will remain, forever will remain
From below, in my seclusion, look up to the sky to see
See paper wings and watch them burn

Without habitation you'll never find a soul inside
No life, but nothin's died
No lights, but quite the show
Just as long as no one ever knows emotion is pantomime

As waves of plastic fame go out of fashion
You're goin' out, goin' out forever alone
These waves of plastic fame go out of fashion
You're goin' out, goin' out forever alone, alone

From above a rain of ashes descends anathema
I will remain, forever will remain
From below, in my seclusion, look up to the sky to see
See paper wings and watch them burn

Dancin' in the rain of descendin' ash
Dancin' on your grave, I'll see you all fallin'
Dancin' in the rain of descendin' ash
Dancin' in your dust, I'll see you all fallin'

Stop!
I'd stop it, had you a heart
I'd stop it, had you a heart

From above a rain of ashes descends anathema
I will remain, forever will remain
From below, in my seclusion, look up to the sky to see
See paper wings and watch them burn

From above a rain of ashes descends anathema
I will remain, forever will remain
From below, in my seclusion, look up to the sky to see
See paper wings and watch them burn
Oh, watcha
